I've been here three years ago and came back now. Realising that they reuse their satay stick and straws. Totally disappointed and not going to come back here anymore.

The satay place is about 10 min walk from Jonker Street. As it was closed to the shop closing time, we could only tried the pork satay when we visited. I think the satay is rather different from the one we had at home in Singapore. The meat is fresh and not so much marinated. The best is actually the... More

This place is relaxed, homely serving freshly made Satay.. Pork, Beef,Chicken.. be warned.. the place gets really full between 12-3pm. A little understaffed so please dont complain about the lateness in cleaning your table. The Satay and sauce is 5* plus.

Heard about this place and decided to make a quick stop to try their pork satay. Ended up having 2 rounds of it! Very simple restaurant where you order at the counter & wait for your freshly grilled satay sticks. They have pork, intestine, liver & chicken. On the side they will come around with the cucumber & onions or... More

Pork Satay (per stick) – 0.9 RM ($0.3 SGD) The pork satay is good and combined with small pieces of pork fat in between the meat, makes the overall balance between lean meat and fatty meat (pork fat) just right (not dry or sloppy). The grilled is just nice too (balance) with sufficient smokiness. Is this the best satay I... More

The Satay or BBQ skewered meat on a wooden pick. The dimension is about 3 inches by quarter inch. There is only chicken and pork satay for selection. If one of the meat type was to be sold out, then it is your choice. Other than meat satay, the shop also sells liver and intestine skewers. All four types of... More

Went to try due to the reviews of the special pineapple sauce they used for the satay. Only pork available when I went. The food and sauce are ok and nothing out of the ordinary like other reviewers had described. Perhaps my expectations were raised by the other reviews.

Reached there at about 4pm plus and there was only one table occupied, so the order came pretty fast. Minimum number of satay sticks is 10. RM 0.90 per stick. Pork satay was a bit salty for me but the sourish sauce complements it. Good to try.

They have beef chicken and pork satay. Completely on jonker street attractions. You may find a nice malacca style satay in this place. Running by the family and must try the wayer melon juice that fresh from the fruitself

I used to patronize this eatery at Jonker Street. A very simple shop house with just two charcoal grills and as the seller finished grilling you can just take a few sticks. Now the young man I knew is an elderly man with lots of helpers to help skewer the pork, liver and intestines satay. The grills are now indoors... More
